Expanded Managed Security Services Capabilities Help Enterprise and Mid-sized Businesses Better Protect Themselves from Advanced Cybersecurity Threats
SAN FRANCISCO - RSA CONFERENCE - February 14, 2017 -- Trustwave today announced new and enhanced managed security and professional services designed to help short-circuit an attacker's activities by detecting cybersecurity threats much earlier and then shutting them down before real damage is done.
Businesses are struggling to detect advanced threats that are highly sophisticated and targeted, and when they do, it's typically months after an incident or breach. Even those businesses who have made investments in various detection technologies often miss leading indicators of compromise, leaving attackers to move undetected throughout their systems, increasing the risk of damage or loss during a breach. To fill this gap, Trustwave has introduced a new, proactive managed threat hunting service delivered by the SpiderLabs team at Trustwave, as well as enhancements to its suite of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services.
Trustwave Managed Detection and Response services leverage Trustwave SpiderLabs experts, located across the company's global network of Advanced Security Operations Centers, who leverage behavioral analytics and multiple intelligence feeds for deep insight into potential threats. Trustwave security professionals not only help isolate malicious behavior and mitigate confirmed threats quickly but also proactively investigate other potential threats that may be present in a customer's environment based on intelligence and research analysis of similar industries and environments.
New and enhanced managed detection and response services include:
"As we monitor an environment, we are not only looking at what security systems are telling us, but we also use state-of-the-art threat hunting techniques to help uncover potential threats before they can gain a foothold in a business and cause damage," said Chris Schueler, Senior Vice President of Managed Security Services at Trustwave. "A proactive approach like this helps greatly reduce the amount of time an attacker goes undetected within a network. As a result, our new services are targeted at helping thwart compromise attempts by uncovering the reconnaissance, lateral movements, C&C, and other methods deployed by attackers."
"Innovative managed security services providers are bringing new services to their portfolios to put businesses back in the driver's seat when it comes to threat detection and response," said Christina Richmond, Program Director, Worldwide Security Services Program, IDC. "As cyber 'bad actors' leverage rapidly evolving attack tools and techniques to evade traditional perimeter controls and find new ways of getting inside a business, managed security services providers like Trustwave have evolved their services to keep pace. This announcement demonstrates Trustwave's ongoing commitment to providing the newest and most relevant capabilities to its customers."
